Default How do you clean RAM sticks?

I've got a stick of RAM that I took out from my computer, it's the stock RAM. It's dusty and I would like to clean it. What can I use to clean it so it's presentable when I decide to sell it? Thanks.

Dust it off with canned air. Avoid using a normal vacuum as that can build up a charge and zap the sticks. Rubbing alcohol works well too

Dry wash rag and/or a horsehair brush.
